two sides of marilyn

A behind-the-scenes look at Marilyn Forever illuminates the secret world of Norma Jeane.

Learn More. “I think the really beautiful thing about this opera is the exploration of the different sides of Marilyn, which is why I decided to cast two characters: one that is more about Norma Jeane’s internal life, and another that is really the flashy starlet we all know.

The use of live cameras, especially in a piece like this, one all about film and public life, really adds a different component, almost like she is in a movie scene. So combining the things you see on stage with the movie projections creates a very interesting new aspect in the opera world." - Andreas Mitisek
